I was delighted to receive the following email earlier today:
“Dear Mr Morris,
I am writing to tell you that your poems in “The Collected Poems of K Morris” that you gave me on the train on my way to college are exceptional. You might not remember me but I am the girl doing politics and history that you met on the train and gifted your amazing book to. I have always been interested in writing poems and therefore you have really inspired me to carry on my interest and write some poems of my own. I would really like to thank you for gifting me your book and inspiring me to continue writing”.
“The Selected Poems of K Morris” can be found here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07WW8WXPP/ (for the UK), and here https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07WW8WXPP/. (for amazon.com customers).
(Please note, I have not included the young lady’s name in order to protect her privacy).
How lovely that she wrote to thank you. And you’ve inspired a new poet! Great.
Thank you, Vivienne. I was delighted. It was, as you say, a lovely thing to do.
Best wishes, Kevin
Thank you, Kev! All the best, Kevin
I’ve just checked out your site and noticed your poetry book too. I will also check it out on Amazon! Best Wishes
Many thanks for checking out my site, and my book on Amazon. I appreciate you doing so.

Thank you, Sannia. Yes, it is lovely and I was delighted to receive this wonderful feedback. Best wishes, Kevin
That was nice of you to give her a copy of your book, and how lovely of her to write such a sweet letter to you. It’s things like this that make it all worthwhile.
Indeed it is, Tony. A personal message from a reader means an enormous amount, and I am extremely grateful to the young woman for taking the time to write to me. Many thanks for your comment. All the best, Kevin
Things such as this letter can really make a day (or year). Well done!
Yes personal feedback like this is wonderful. Thank you for your congratulations. Best wishes. Kevin
…And also, obviously, for the lady on the train!
I just ordered the Croydon Poets book – How could I resist? The 50p building AND K. Morris! 🙂
Thanks so much for ordering The Croydon Poetry Hour Anthology! Sorry for the delay in approving your comment, which was lurking in my spam folder for some inexplicable reason! Best wishes. Kevin
